Black Adam movie, the movie led by Dwayne Johnson, and Minecraft movie, no longer have a confirmed date of release now.

The film, which is starred by Gal Gadot, has a December 25, 2020 release date, and the release date of that of the Soul movie by Pixar is November 20 of this year.
Warner Bros. had to face a lot of hurdles, which led to the postponing of the first-ever Pattinson-led Batman movie. Among all of the reasons behind the postponement of the movie, one reason was the production delays of the movie, as it was stated by Warner Bros. Since the pandemic struck, the studio had asked all of its film to halt their production for an indefinite period of time.
In the case of The Batman, the crew of the movie resumed production in the month of September, but a few days later, it was revealed that Robert Pattinson had been tested for the novel Coronavirus, which led to the unexpected delays in the production of the movie.
